The story goes like this...My mom had plans to visit Tessa in San Francisco over her birthday this past weekend. A week before, and half a bottle of wine into a date night, I proposed my crazy idea to my fantastic husband, and he said "GO!". So, when we got home that night I booked my ticket and then emailed my sister to see if we could crash their weekend. Backwards I know, but who could say no to this face?
|Psst...Maggie! Quit showing off your kid and get back to the story!|
Tessa was all sneaky-ninja-like and told my mom that she had to pick a co-worker up from the airport to get her there. When I walked through the doors I saw my mom staring with this confused look on her face. Here's what she was saying:
"Does your friend look like Maggie?" and
"Your friend looks exactly like Maggie!" and finally
"Is that Maggie?"
And then the screaming. Screaming and smiling and hugging and screaming. It was perfect.
|Moments after the big surprise!|
I raved about my love of the Ferry Building on my last trip to San Francisco in November. But this time was even better. We went on Saturday morning. Saturday morning equals Ah-Mazing Market! Gorgeous food. If I lived anywhere near this market I would be dead broke all the time.
I was able to find all the ingredients for the Spinach, Mushroom and Goat Cheese Tart that I recently made and Saturday night's dinner was born. And it was a hit.
The sun was shining that morning and we had a delightful breakfast on the pier while Anna took a nap.
